The pursuit of a criminal prosecution is frequently difficult and time consuming, mainly because criminal law entails particular procedural safeguards and outcomes, which are not proportionate to the harm caused, particularly where there is no “criminal” intent. It has also been argued that fines imposed by the courts can often be small compared to the economic benefits of the offence or that they do not necessarily achieve the desired outcome or a change in behavior. This has led to some public discussion on the potential use of administrative sanctions for environmental offences in Ireland.
